2017 is almost here and in july 2017 we will be celebrating a 'Victoria cross' winner from my home town Buckie, Scotland.
"No. 265579, George McIntosh, Private, 1/6th Battalion, The Gordon Highlanders (Buckie, Banffshire). For most conspicuous bravery when, during the consolidation of a position, his company came under machine gun fire at close range.
"Private McIntosh immediately rushed forward under heavy fire, and reaching the emplacement, he threw a Mills grenade in to it, killing two of the enemy and wounding a third. Subsequently, entering the dug-out, he found two light machine guns, which he carried back with him.
"His quick grasp of the situation and the utter fearlessness and rapidity with which he acted undoubtedly saved many of his comrades, and enabled the consolidation to proceed unhindered by machine gun fire.
"Throughout the day the cheerfulness and courage of Private McIntosh was indomitable, and to his fine example in a great measure was due the success which attended his company."

    Whilst not in kit some of the voice actors are Scottish and you could use a Scottish regimental patch if you wanted

    Never apposed to adding more nations for this game

    Thanks guys,
    I do appreciate that there are Scottish accents in game but I would love to see a "Kilted Warrior" as maybe even a uniform option or even adding the bagpipes to your inventory as these were used not only as moral boosters and boosting there adrenalin to the troops but they also scared the living daylights out of the enemy during battle (and our Allies :) )
    I also use the old HD "Highland Division" as a patch
    And yes it would be cool for other countries to have a uniform skin of sorts giving a wee bit more clan pride if you like!

    Not buying that at all, sorry. So if I post a link to youtube of a the game and there is swearing generated by the game .........

    The irony is amazing. Swear isnt illegal. Then you are told off for posting a swear word, even although it is **** out?!?!?!? LOL Mental. PC gone mad in my opinion. However the thread is about Scottish soldiers not swearing ;)

    How about an Indian guy or an African? With 50% white soldiers already adding another would severely under represent a couple already misrepresented races.... forget PTFO it's all about EO and being PC.

    PCEO FTW!!!

    This is why character customisation is a must. Under the British army, to change the hats, faces and garments such as kilts would be awesome

    Not oy kilts but bagpipes as well. They played them during battle in WW1 -saw this in movie War Horse (2011) just recently on TV

    The 'pipers' didn't go over the top with a rifle though. They played as they marched on, so I would think it would be a waste of time to include if I'm honest
